Football is a rough game of
bodily contact where opposing
players rely totally on athletic
skills and physical endurance.
Coaching the team for Saugus
Junior High has been the job of
Mr. Petrone for the past four
years. It has been his responsibil-
ity to create the teams that would
be efficient and smooth working
units. It is not an easy job to mold
a working team from a group of
individual players. Coach Petrone,
aided by the assistant coaches,
has carried out this tremendous
task well. He has pulled together
some outstanding teams for the
It is for this reason that, we as
departing grade nine veterans of
the team, dedicate this year's
football section to the man who
has done the most work for the
team, gotten the most Excedrin
headaches during the season, and
received the least glory that
might, by some strange coinci-
dence, have been bestowed on the
junior high team--Mr. Patrick
Petrone, Coach of the Saugus
Junior High Football team.
minutes left in the first half.
Pagliarulo assisted by Gannon and
Gillespie helped to get Saugus on the
scoreboard, thus making the half time
The Saugus team came back in the
second half defensively with a strong
effort by Connaughton and offensively
by Mackie but the team was unable to
stop the deep passes and sweeps. The
game ended with a score of 26-6. It was
a hard fought game but, nevertheless,
depressing to the Saugus team.
The members of the team
worked hard this season trying to
pull together a strong tough squad.
After three weeks of grueling prac-
tice every night after school until
6 pm. and Saturdays until 11 am.,
the Saugus team played its open-
ing game against Newburyport on
September 28, 1972. Coach
Petrone aided by Assistant Coach
Keddy had built a strong squad.
Saugus' starting line consisted of
Frank Scuzzarella and Robert
Fabrizio as ends, Steve Gannon,
left tackle, Bob Meader, right
tackle, Bob Gillespie and Tim
O'Neil, guards, and Mike O'Neil
was center. The backfield was
occupied by Tom Heaney and Bill
Granara as half backs, John
Strangle as full back and Richard
Pert was the starting quarterback.
Sporting a 5-4 normal defense
technique, the Saugus defense was
hard hit by the Newburyport of-
fense who managed to score a
total of 13 points through good use
of the option and deep passes. Al-
though Saugus was unable to score,
there were some examples of good
effort by Mackie and Gillespie and
in the second half Connaughton
showed promise. Defensive ends
Gannon and Boudreau were tough
but not tough enough for the over-
powering opponent. Heaney was
very impressive as a ball carrier
in this opener while Pagliarulo
showed ability to read the guards
but was weak on tackles.
With no comment on the
opener, Coach Petrone faced a
week of drills striving to build a
strong backfield while Coach
Keddy vowed to strengthen the
One week later on a somber
fog shrouded day, the Saugus team
suffered its second defeat at the
hands of Swampscott. The contest
was a bloodbath in the first half
with Swampscott scoring three
touchdowns. Saugus did, how-
ever, manage to score with only
The red machine was back in gear
"The red machine was back in gear"
when it faced Lynn one week later.
Through good defensive team effort Saugus
managed to come from a scoreless first half
to a final score of 18-0. Touchdowns were
scored by Granara with a 35 yard reverse,
Mackie with a 7 yard dive and a sweep by
Heaney. Scuzzarella and Strangie inter-
cepted one and two passes respectively.
Having won its first game the team ac-
quired the momentum to face Maiden
Catholic and the "Bud Men" (as the team
called itself) had risen again - this time to
a 28-0 win over Maiden Catholic.
Heaney scored in the first half with a
55 yard run while Gannon recovered a
fumble in the end zone for a touchdown
after which Heaney scored a 2 point con-
version (end around at 1) to make half
time score 14 - 0.
In the second half Heaney made a 60
yard pass to Fabrizio for a touchdown and
Nicolo made a 40 yard pass to MacDonald
to score. The point conversion came when
Nicolo passed to Jimmy Burke. Nicolo
and Heaney demonstrated outstanding de-
fensive effort in this game.
A feather brings luck
With a 44- 30 win over Winthrop,
Saugus managed to put another feather in
its cap- But, this time it was not Nicolo's
feather; it was Turgiss' peacock plume
which managed to bring the luck. Using a
tackle trap and a sweep, Heaney scored 2
touchdowns. Mackie dove over the line for
6 points while Strangie managed to come
across with 6 points through the use of a
flea flicker play from Heaney. A pass from
Nicolo to Scuzzarella and another from
Heaney to Fabrizio put 12 more points on
Saugus' scoreboard. Scuzzarella put "three
more feathers in his cap" with 3 two point
conversions while Nicolo completed a pass
to himself for another 2 point conversion,
faring the first half Strangie showed
outstanding defensive effort and technique
when he intercepted a short pass and gave
Saugus the momentum needed to score.
Connaughton and Sullivan each recovered
fumbles while Tim O'Neil, Mike O'Neal,
Gannon, Scuzzarella, Sullivan and
McCarthy (the line) showed great effort as

On November 6, 1972, the Bud
Men romped over rival Gloucester
180- . Saugus was on the scoreboard
from the first quarter when Nicolo ran
three yards for a touchdown. Adding to
the excitement of the first quarter was
an interception by Strangie at the
40 yd. pass to Scuzzarella. Second
quarter proved to be just as exciting
with a touchdown scored by Fabrizio
on a pass from Heaney.
Starting the second half with a
12-0 score, Nicolo handed off to
Heaney to score Saugus' last points.
Although Saugus did not score in the
fourth quarter, the excitement was
not lacking as Scuzzarella intercepted
another pass and carried the ball 20
yards. The last minutes of the game
saw Strangie again intercept at the 20
yard line and run the ball back 30
The well disciplined teamwork,
exploding offense (led by Heaney) and
the tight defense (led by Strangie)
managed to let Saugus make it 4 wins
in a row.
Saugus bombed Danvers with a
score of 14-0. Starting in the first
quarter with a wing back hook from
Nicolo to Heaney and a full back trail
for the lateral by Strangie, Saugus was
on the scoreboard. The 2 point con-
version was made on a pass from
Nicolo to Scuzzarella. In the second
quarter a bootleg at 9 pass from Nicolo
to Fabrizio made half time score 14-0.
Although no points were scored in
the second half, action was not lack-
ing. Scuzzarella, who had intercepted
a pass at the 40 yard in the first half,
again intercepted in the end zone.
Connaughton managed to recover a
fumble and a thirty yard pass from
Heaney was completed by Fabrizio.
The cornerbacks and safeties, as
well as the team in general, showed
outstanding effort as they won their
fifth straight game.
A 6-2 Season
In the final game of the season,
Saugus managed to beat Marblehead
by a score of 20-6 and earn a 6-2
In the first half Heaney, using a
41 sweep, scored 6 points. Then, using
a 41 half back pass from Heaney,
Fabrizio managed to score. It was a
bootleg at 9 pass from Nicolo to
Scuzzarella which made half time
In the second half, even though
the defensive backfield of Marblehead
"covered like a blanket", Saugus
managed to add 6 more points to its
score when Mackie, using a 34 dive
play, gained the 3 yards needed for a
A combination of good blocking,
good running, and a good mix-up of
plays together with an interception by
Heaney and two fumble recovers by
Scuzzarella and Mike O'Neil respec-
tively, enabled Saugus to win the
final game of the season.
Congratulations team !
Basketball . . .
Coach Bryan cited the constant determination and
hard work of the Freshman Basketball team as the
major factors contributing to the success of the team
The Saugus Freshmen have been averaging 60
points a game while limiting their opponents to 50
points. The leading scorers were co-captain John
Nicolo, co-captain Steve Gannon, Al Stickney, Dave
Manning and Tony Pagliarulo. John Nicolo has been
averaging 20. 5 points a game and Steve Gannon has
been scoring an average of 19 points a game. The
leading rebounders were Steve Gannon, Al Stickney,
Bob Fabrizio, Rich Pert, and Tony Pagliarulo. Steve
had anaverage of 15 rebounds a game while Al av-
eraged 9 rebounds a game. Defensive standouts were:
John Nicolo, Dave Manning, Steve Gannon, Tony
Pagliarulo and Al Stickney.
The team was invited to participate in the seventh
annual Jr. High and Freshman Invitational Basketball
Tournament sponsored by the Newton Police Athletic
Association. The first game was played on February
19, 1973 against the defending champions, West
Junior High School of Watertown.
The season basketball records established by the
freshman team this year were: (based on 14 games)
KNEELING (L TO R): Mike Celata, Tim O'Neal, John Slattery, Ed Duval, Frank Woods (manager). ROW 2: Dave
Manning, Bruce Falzarano, John Nicolo (co-captain), Tony Pagliarulo, Richard Pert, Paul McGrath, John Short.
ROW 3: Coach Bryan, Mike Macero (head manager), Bob Meader, Al Stickney, Steve Gannon (co-captain), Bob
Fabrizio, Paul Galvin, Bob Romeo, (missing): Russ Cross and manager Bill Starr.
This page is dedicated to Mr. Bryan, a man of great dependability and devotion. Mr. Bryan is a man who cares
about his athletes to the extent of helping them on his own free time. He is the type of man who will go out of his
way to perfect something or to help improve an athlete's fundamentals. He cares more about a boy's health and
physical well being than any game, no matter how important the situation may be.
In the many years past, Mr. Bryan has been known for doing more than required at his coaching job as Freshman
Basketball Coach and Varsity Cross County Coach. This year he started a Junior High Cross Country Program which
is another sign of his concern for young athletes.
It is for these reasons that we, your Freshman Basketball Team would like to take this opportunity to thank you
for your concern and consideration.
Hockey . . .
ROW 1 (L TO R): John Spinney and Rick Kasabuski. ROW 2: Mike O'Neil (co-captain), Jeff Fiorvanti, Mark Chris-
os, Dave Reiniger, Stew Anderson, Luke Wall, Steve Wallace, Bruce Holt, Mr. Manoogian. ROW 3: Roy Skidmore,
Stew Holt, Scott Whittredge, Tom Heaney (co-captain), and Bill Granara.
Before this book went to the publishers there were
two other games played which were worth mention.
The Junior High team played against the faculty. The
first game saw a 7-6 victory for the students while the
second saw the faculty come back for a 7-3 win over
the students. Both the students and the faculty deserve
recognition as a result of these two encounters.
This year the Belmonte Junior High hockey
team was in the midst of a rebuilding year
with only seven regulars returning. Of those
regulars Stu Holt and John Spinney showed
much overall improvement.
Consistently scoring for the team were Tom
Heaney (co-captain), Stu Holt, and Bill Gran-
ara, who also held the dubious record of "most
penalty minutes" for the team. Steve Wallace
did double duty for the team, as did Tom
Heaney, playing on the first line and killing
off penalties when needed.
Defensively, Mike O'Neil (co-captain),
Jeff Fiorvanti and Stu Anderson did an excel-
lent job at keeping the other teams at bay
plus adding an offensive punch of their own.
Mark Chrisos, Roy Skidmore, Dave Nas-
uti, Dave Reiniger and Luke Wall would all
be eligible for any team's seventh player
award for a job well done, above and beyond
what would be expected.
Next year the team has some good talent
coming back in the form of Richard Kasabuski
and Tom Stretton who will be sharing goal
tending duties for the team, Bruce Holt and
Tim Nicholson at defense and Bob Stewart,
Don Hess and Scott Whittredge leading the
This year the team had considerably more
ice time in the form of regular practice ses-
sions and also several exhibition games with
the Regional Vocational school and Mascono-
met Regional High freshmen. The team
record for exhibition games was 3 wins and
As was mentioned in the scoreboard the
highlight of the team's activity was a contest
in which the team defeated the faculty 7-6 on
a much disputed goal, however, again it is
worth mention that the rematch game was
won 7-3 by the faculty with the help of John
Spinney in the goal for the teachers.
Profiles Of A Hockey Coach
As this book goes to the publisher the 1973 baseball season has not
yet begun. However, the 1972 season deserves mention. Former ninth
graders: William McCarthy, Philip Casella, James Scannell, Joe Mar-
kowski, Peter Genzali, Steve DesLoges, Paul Carbone and Jim Wiswall
aided by the present ninth graders: John Nicolo, Mark Chrisos, Mike
O'Neil, John Strangle, Tom Heaney, Roy Skidmore, Bill Granara,
and Luke Wall managed to experience an exciting season shown by a
9-4 record. Coach Petrone is very optimistic about the 1973 season
with the anticipation of the return of the seven veteran players. Coach
Petrone remarked. "I expect that with the help of one or two eighth
graders our 1973 season could be our best in the last three years. "
As the season begins our only wish is that the team, aided both in
spirit and technique by Coach Petrone, will experience a winning sea-
Good luck team!
